  • ivy

    ivy, an APL-like calculator (by robpike)

    My recent exposure to array programming languages came via a podcast called The Array Cast[1]

    Not affiliated, just recommending. The regular co-hosts appear to each be experienced with various array languages such as J, APL, etc. They don't get deeply technical, but it's a nice introduction, especially on explaining the appeal.

    A recent episode had Rob Pike (UTF-8, Go, etc.) on to talk about his array based calculator, Ivy[2]

  • BQN

    An APL-like programming language

    > Are there any other languages that use glyphs so heavily?

    APL (the first, invented in the 1960s): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/APL_(programming_language)

    BQN (a modern APL, looks like an inspiration for Uiua though I don't know): https://mlochbaum.github.io/BQN/

    Too many smaller esoteric languages to count.

  • cognate

    A human readable quasi-concatenative programming language

    Reminds me a bit of Cognate(https://github.com/cognate-lang/cognate/blob/master/INTRODUC...)

    Think I would like Uiua more if it require a space between terms. It wouldn’t be quite as tacit but it would be easier to read and more flexible — you could multi-symbol operators.

  • related_post_gen

    Data Processing benchmark featuring Rust, Go, Swift, Zig, Julia etc.

    The arrows that iterate through the steps is great UX. I'm new to both array and stack based programming and it was pretty intuitive.

    How would I go about file i/o and parsing json? I have a data processing benchmark that I'd like to use this for.

  • uiua

    A stack-based array programming language

    Yeah

    > The main language that inspired Uiua is BQN. While I had heard about APL before, BQN was my first real exposure to the power of the array paradigm. I think the language is an astounding feat of engineering. Marshall is both a genius and a great communicator.

    Also, a week ago there were only two contributors to the project: 1000+ by kaikalii, and this single commit by Marshall:
